ARTIST’S MESSAGE OF LOVE AND HOPE

Ashley Jackson, Canadian Painter

Ashley Jackson, Canadian Painter, Surrey, B.C., Canada

It is rare that we see a mature and successful transformation of the art materials in an emerging artist. However Ashley Jackson has achieved this and more!  Her passion, clarity of purpose, vision and flawless technique are definitely that of an authentic artist!

As a young five year old child, Ashley was drawing and finger painting. She remembers that she was always very attracted to colors. So even at this tender age, Ashley was confidently creating her own originals by changing a blue sky to purple or white flowers to pinks.  She knew from the beginning that she was entitled to her own creative process and she changed the forms and colors to her liking.

Ashley attended Springvale Primary School in Centurion, South Africa.   It felt right to her to stay within the lines as one teacher suggested and this was the early beginnings of her beautiful symbolic art works.

Ashley moved to South Surrey, B.C., Canada in 2001 and attended Semiahmoo Secondary School.  She excelled in her art classes and loved learning how to use various media such as pastels, pencils, acrylics and clay.  She found her teachers were very helpful.  Once again, in her teenage years, she began to incorporate certain symbols into her art works furthering the use of lines. She loved to do tribal work and drew many faces.  This education definitely contributed to her strength as an artist.

Her true foundation and education in art was accomplished during six years of private tutorial with Chris Lagalisse, Artist and  Art Educator.  Chris Lagalisse studied at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  He has a Bachelor of Arts and Education Degree and is a licensed instructor.  Her private tutorials were at the Neighbourhood Art Studio in White Rock, B.C.  Chris Lagalisse’s creative guidance and critiques immensely assisted Ashley to gain true confidence in herself as an artist and to develop her own unique art language.

Working in her own studio she began to experiment by adding various materials to the acrylic paint such as sand, wood, or beads.  She now creates her works of art using totally archival materials.

When Ashley paints she feels electrified and explosive.  Her sense of physical space and time fades away.  She believes that she is that divinely guided and inspired.  She receives vibrational energies and visions that she recreates in her amazing art works.  Her clear use of line and symbols as well as mixed media has formed the basis of Ashley Jackson’s resolved works of art.

Ashley is very aware of all the challenges people face in their minds.  She experienced a difficult time of shadows and her faith has brought her into a place full of optimism and light. She adds,

“That is why I use rich, intense colors and exhilarating energy. Creation is larger than us. I know it’s not just me!  I am being guided to paint these messages of love and hope.  I really can see that.”

Her intention once she has completed an artwork is that this may become a message of love and hope.  She believes that people need to experience something beautiful.  Ashley says, “I am trying to reach the viewer’s soul and leave an imprint of Light, Love, Hope and any positive emotion that will help to shift their energy, even if only for a brief moment.”

She has completed several portrait commissions and among these paintings is a portrait of a young boy who died at the age of 13 years.  She was able to intuit his surroundings and paint these surroundings accurately which made his family and friends very happy.  When she paints a new portrait she likes to show the subject’s personal growth and those particular surroundings that have deep meaning to them.

Ashley exhibited at the Fleetwood Festival of the Arts,  Fleetwood 84th Ave Cafe, StreetFEST, Surrey,B.C. Canada August 3rd, 2014.  There she created a community painting with her words “Hope and Love” in the centre and she invited others to add their own thoughts. The title of the painting is “Community” and it is sized 24 inches x 36 inches.  This spontaneous interactive creation helped to strengthen the values of each individual who participated and of the whole community that viewed the art work!

She has also exhibited at the Arnold Mikelson Festival of the Arts, White Rock, B.C., Canada in July, 2013.  During October 2014, she did a collaborative art exhibition, “A Life in Spirit and Color,” featuring her artworks and the artworks of Kevin Jordan, Canadian Painter at the Mind and Matter Gallery, White Rock, B.C., Canada.

Ashley Jackson is an outstanding Canadian painter and she has artworks held in private collections in Canada, Australia, Japan and Africa.

IF WE DREAM THE SAME DREAM…..


2:01 am
February 23, 2010

In these rare hours

spiral corridors of thoughts shuttle

a wild dictation pre-empting logic

where impossible seeds take hold

in my landless neurology

dissolving drop by drop

into my sleep darkly.

So…..having slept a dreamless sleep, I awakened this morning and moved through the day with an ever increasing need to fantasize about a world filled with people who care about one another deeply.

A world where no one suffers and the air and water are clean.

A world where there is no war…no more killing and senseless diseases are conquered.

Hey, I can dream. Why don’t you join me!

I have this theory which is not my own but based on scientific data.

The one hundredth monkey syndrome.

On an island, far, far away there were ninety-nine monkeys.  They were quite hungry and yet playful.  They began to play with the stones on a beach.  Tossing them back and forth and up into the air.  Quite by accident, one monkey took a bite out of the stone, only to discover that it was a potato. True, monkeys would probably prefer bananas, but there were no bananas, just potatoes and once the word got around all of the ninety-nine monkey began to eat potatoes.

Now here’s the good part. Right about that time, on a nearby island, for no apparent reason, a monkey who knew nothing of the potato revelation on the first island, picked up a potato and began to eat it!

I’m not implying that we are monkeys, but really if we all dream the same dream, you never know what might happen.
Let us keep our hope, compassion and love foremost in our hearts and minds as we move through each moment of our day! Peace is possible!
